The Hunting in the Ozarks was essentially
a shooting gallery with a huge and impressive
twist. Instead of leaning against a rail
and shooting objects lined in a row, as
in a  carnival,  the marksman (or woman),
would fire  in a huge area populated by iron
squirrels, rabbits, quail, deer, bear; every Ozark game
animal from the Missouri/Arkansas Ozark country was
represented. They  glided in and out  real trees, rocks, water,
and foliage on rails.

The Savage Model 1903-22 Caliber Repeater, and  semi-smokeless shot was used in this shooting  gallery.

Though the attraction was free, the concession charged a rather pricey 20 cents for only 7 shots.
